So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

This is for 2 challenges today...the first is for Tina's Glitter and Flock Challenge on Stamp TV. The other is for Speedy Cat's at Mark's Finest #62 for Patriotic theme.

I had a great time with this one..LOTS of sparkles!!! I used Best Creations Inc dp..I Love America and GKD navy cs. Did some blue, red, gold embossing on the front and along the edges added some glitter on the frame. The stamps were from a variety of companies ... Northwoods, Bad Ace Trading Co., Door Co rubber stamps, Stampendous. Did some ladybug red Memento ink on the star template, used Paris Dusk and Lady Bug ink for stamping, used Sakura glitter pens for color,  added some ribbon from Michaels, Dress It Up Buttons with glitter, stickers and bling!!
